A farmer who lost 15 of his herd in January Kobamelo Rantsudu said so far close to 50 cattle have died.  He said the most surprising thing is that the affected cattle do not show any signs or symptoms of any illness but they just die in a fresh state. He added that the cattle are released from the kraals to graze only to be found dead and scattered in the bushes.

“We informed the veterinary officials who drew blood samples from the dead cattle but informed us that they found nothing.
